Types of RID Certification
RID currently offers two different certifications. In addition, RID currently recognizes certifications that were previously offered by RID, but the exams are no longer available, as well as credentials assessed and awarded by the National Association of the Deaf (NAD). Individuals who hold NAD credentials that have been previously recognized by RID are considered Certified members of RID.
